  • Patent number: 8492651
    Abstract: A housing is used to accommodate electrical switching components. The housing includes a housing body, a cover, and a seal between the housing body and the cover. The cover is fastened to the housing body using fastening elements. A smooth transition is formed between the side parts of the housing body and the cover on the housing side having the seal. Thus a particularly easy to clean housing can be provided, wherein the housing meets the exceptional hygienic requirements that exist, for example, in the field of the food industry or in medical fields. In the housing as descried, soiling can no longer collect on the housing.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a housing, which is used to accommodate in particular electrical switching components, comprising a housing body, a cover, and a seal between the housing body and the cover, wherein the cover is fastened to the housing body using fastening elements. The invention further relates to a method for changing over a seal of such a housing. According to the invention, a smooth transition is formed between the side parts of the housing body and the cover on the housing side having the seal. Thus a particularly easy to clean housing can be provided, wherein the housing in particular meets the exceptional hygienic requirements that exist, for example, in the field of the food industry or in medical fields. In contrast to housing embodiments known from the prior art, soiling can no longer collect on the housing.

  • Patent number: 7635234
    Abstract: A coupling element for connecting a housing or a support arm system element with a support arm. The coupling element has a hollow cylinder-shaped receiving element fixed in place on the housing or the support arm system element for receiving and fixing in place the support arm in the axial direction. So that the coupling element can meet the requirements made on its employment in the field connected with health, the receiving element is covered by a cup-shaped cover which has a central through-opening for passing the support arm through and which has an edge area circumferentially supported on the receiving element. The through-opening is sealed against the exterior circumferential face of the support arm, and the edge area of the cover is sealed against the receiving element.
